Virgen Morenita Sr Group's story

The communal bank Virgen Morenita, as part of the Agencia San Roque, is made up of eight members and is led by officers, of whom Geovana is one.

Geovana is 32 years old, married, and has 1 child. She has a business selling books, magazines, and newspapers. With the loan, she will purchase books, magazines, and newspapers, which she will get from the wholesalers. Later, she will sell them at her sales stand near the central market.

This type of work allows her to generate resources to support her family financially. Her aspirations are to have a booth and to own a house. Geovana asks that you be able to trust in her communal bank.

Note: There are only three representatives of the communal bank in the photo, because of social distancing due to the pandemic.

In this group: Maria Angelica, Yobana, Jose Santiago, Jhon Christian, Cristian, Delcy Jimena, Geovana, Jorge Luis
